Gal Pissetzky, the legal representative of suspected Internet fraudster, Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi, has told The PUNCH that his case is getting better.
He also denied reports that he had dumped the suspect, saying he would still be standing for him in California, where the case was transferred to.
Hushpuppi was arrested by the Dubai Police and extradited to the United States of America, where he was handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
He was arraigned in a Chicago court on Monday and remanded in custody.
Hushpuppi was said to have been transferred to the Central District of California for prosecution.
On Friday, he said his services were still retained by Hushpuppi despite the transfer of the case to California.
He said, “I am still representing him. I will be in California for the case.
“Our legal system is quite different from yours. That he was denied bail does not mean his case is getting worse. Actually, I think it’s getting better. I am not, however, allowed to comment on the facts of the case.
